There's not many where the best player is the biggest.
There are outliers and specialist roles where size/strength is not an advantage, but for the majority of sports it absolutely is.
Eh, that context matters to you, I only saw the image, which is about a trans athlete. While it may help you to imagine how to combat enemies you form in your mind, it will help even more to consider whether that is on point when you project it to a real other person who lives outside your mind; forming a realistic view about them is a little more complicated.
So like can someone explain why the default normal position on this is not just:
let people play whatever sports they want, and the elite (like top 0.0001% in the world) athletes who cry and whine about being entitled to win can suck it? Like I believe in the case of the trans swimmer the one woman was crying about coming in 17th instead of 16th or something? Who the hell cares? How is this not obviously a pretext for transphobic psychos to fudge with people?
It is a banned performance enhancing drug.
As a cis man, I have absolutely zero issue with the Latin prefix being used as a qualifier when relevant (which it often is in discussions like these). I don't walk into my water polo training and go HELLO FELLOW CIS MEN, though, because, contextually, that'd be silly. But I give full permission for people to use it, wherever they mayFor a "cis male" (what a terrible term, but sadly I guess people will keep using it without caring what the group it presents thinks of it )
Eh, not really and not linearly. There's a point of diminishing returns and a point where it can start to become counterproductive. Most team sport also values speed, coordination, agility, spatial awareness and play reading, and those are attributes that are either irrelevant to, or in direct conflict with raw size.
Whether it's the giant front rower rumbling along from tackle to tackle but unable to contain a fleet footed winger, a relatively unskilled ruck having to handball to teammates because they are unable to effectively make difficult kicks the way midfielders can, or a gangly fast bowler looking ridiculous when standing at bat with their overly long limbs, there's so many situations where it's not size that's key.
Not strictly related to trans athletes, but the answer to the question "Why aren't there more women & girls in [sport N]?" is "Because they're pushed out of it from a young age" every time. I know nothing about horse racing, but if that is an overwhelmingly male field of competition, I'd bet the $10 I have in my wallet that it's not because women aren't good at it, or because they don't enjoy it; it's because they're guided and/or pushed into styles or competitions that have been gendered for girls, from whatever age people start riding horses.
